The mission of this Chapter is to reinforce the objective of the Society of Professional Fire Protection Engineers. The Chapter will define, develop, and advance the use of engineering best practices; expand the scientific/technical knowledge base; educate the global fire safety community in order to reduce fire risk.


Are you looking to get more involved in the Southern California chapter of SFPE? Come to our events! Our members and visitors always enjoy our monthly meetings. Join one of our planning committees and volunteer your time!

We have a committee for administration, relationships, scholarship, symposium, golf tournament, social media, annual audit, nominations, and the budget!


We would like to give a warm welcome to Armen Manatsaghanian into the Vice President of Membership and also to Chris Wicker as a Member-At-Large for the 2021 - 2022 Executive Board. A special thank you to Michele Knight Vail for her hard work this past year.

Also thank you to everybody else on the Board for staying on for another year.

Thank you!

Steven Dannaway
